Arizona Dairy Farmers Facing Tough Times Again February 6, 2013

By Julie Murphree, Arizona Farm Bureau

Our lead feature for Arizona Farm Bureau’s Arizona Agriculture covers the dairy industry. We interviewed Paul Rovey, owner of Rovey Dairy, chair of Dairy Management, Inc. and President of United Dairymen of Arizona (UDA).

The article highlights some of the specific challenges including the impact of the Farm Bill extension that took place in January.

A few things I learned from this latest interview with Rovey:

1. Arizona dairy farmers are resiliant.

2. Our dairy farmers plan for tough times to weather them.

3. They produce an amazing product.

4. The dairy industry in Arizona thrives despite such challenges.

 For a full read on the interview I had with Rovey, check out The Return of Tough Times in the Dairy Industry.
